A Soundtrack to My Life by Jordan McCarty

Dedications

I'm dedicating this soundtrack to all my friends and family who have been there for me through thick and thin. I'm also dedicating this soundtrack to Jesus Christ. Even though i may not always live right, thank you for being there for me no matter how messed up things get.

Don't Laugh at Me - Mark Willis (3:35)

I picked this song because I struggled with being bullied a lot in middle school and freshman year because I was kind of weird. Nobody deserves to be bullied, and I especially love the line in this song that says "In Gods eye's we're all the same, Someday we'll all have perfect wings"

Mark Wills - Don't Laugh At Me

Mad World - Tears for Fears (3:48)

This song describes how i felt the first couple days of freshman year. I was facing depression from all the bulling, and it didn't help when i got beat up the last day of school in 8th grade and had the start high school 3 days late due to suspension.

Slow Fade - Casting Crowns (5:17)

I picked this song because for a while i had started hanging with the wrong crowd and i was going down the wrong path. I'm so lucky that i have people there for me that helped me realize it before it was too late.
